This word that is
the root of loneliness arcs away
from language itself

Not the first word,
it has not been recently added,
nor saved for last;

It is not the cry
of a well-known hero,
nor accomplished silence-

It is a body in pain,
even cherished,
when your heart stops
at the thought of escape

and the sound
of Stay.
